Hi, If your son' s computer has a LAN port, then install the LAN driver. LAN port is different from modem. Modem is used for dial-up connection while LAN uses broadband or dsl connection. If you do not know where or how to find the LAN driver, post the manufacturer and model name of your LAN or the motherboard. You can also find it by right clicking the My Computer icon->Manage->Device Manager. On the right side, Expand the Network Adapter. You will then find the software that you are going to reinstall. Another thing is to try to update the driver if it works or not. Here are the steps :

  1. Right click My Computer icon.
  2. Click Manage
  3. A box will appear (Computer Management), Click Device Manager
  4. On the right side, Click and expand Network Adapters
  5. Right click the software, click update driver.
  6. Wait 'til it finds the necessary software.
  7. If it does, then your finished installing the Network Adapter driver. If it says it cannot find the necessary software, you have to manually install it.
  8. IF NOT yet installed, copy the Network Adapter software and paste it in google to find your Network Adapter installer.
I hope this fix your problem. Drop me a comment again if you encounter some problems, ok? I will assist you.

Remove the Old memory and see if the system reconizes it, if yes the old is not compatable together.

Upgraded RAM, added USB port card at rear panel ... now no worko


Try reseating the RAM. If the computer won't even post it's probably a RAM problem. I worked on a machine about a year ago that took almost two days to get the RAM to seat properly. It was doing the same thing worked when it wanted to. I finally used the end of my BIC lighter to beat it in. You can try to reinstall the old RAM to see if the RAM is the problem or try installing it one stick at a time.

Comp not reading montor


It sounds like the on board video has failed. I would try installing a video card on the motherboard. Then in the bios at start up, disable the on board video, so it will use the video card instead.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa,

No video drivers, sound drivers and Ethenet drivers


You will need to go to the manufacturer's website and find their support page. There you can download drivers for your computer.

If you provide a model number we can point you to the driver downloads.
